We establish asymptotic normality and consistency for rank-based estimators of autoregressive-moving average model parameters. The estimators are obtained by minimizing a rank-based residual dispersion function similar to the one given by L.A. Jaeckel [Ann. Math. Stat. Vol. 43 (1972) 1449-1458]. These estimators can have the same asymptotic efficiency as maximum likelihood estimators and are robust. The quality of the asymptotic approximations for finite samples is studied via simulation.
